This book, and Tim O'Brien's others, should be read by a lot of Americans, so that they will recall the experience of Vietnam. Iraq may overshadow their thoughts presently, but Vietnam should be remembered, and this first-hand account of American boys at war in a strange foreign land will help memory.
